  • Palmer v. D.C. (Another 2A Victory)

    Decision on Palmer v. D.C.

    "In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. Accordingly, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and enjoins Defendants from enforcing the home limitations of D.C. Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.4 Furthermore, this injunction prohibits the District from completely banning the carrying of handguns in public for self-defense by otherwise qualified non-residents based solely on the fact that they are not residents of the District."

            I'm sorry, Will, I was thinking out loud. I meant for me personally. I live near DC and it complicates things to go in and out of MD, VA, and DC.

              As I understand it that makes DC a constitutional carry zone for now, as the laws prohibiting it are invalid.

                  " . . . until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms." Which many would interpret as meaning "don't implement any near-impossible jump-through-hoops procedures, fees, etc. for licensing," but some administrators will probably try that anyway.

                      I can see DC fighting this until they can't and when DC looses, they will treat its ccw permit like MD. For those not familiar with MD its next to imposable to obtain a ccw permit unless "based on the results of investigation, “good and substantial reason” to carry a handgun, including a finding that the permit is “necessary as a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger.”In the end only the higher ups in dc govt will have the permits.

                      Plus i can see that dc wont recognize other states permits, or vice versa.

                        Check the link David Hineline posted. He sez that Emily Miller sez (and I quote)
                        DC police chief using guidance from AG -- grants full reciprocity for all open and concealed carry from others states.
                        I like it, but I find it hard to believe, especially if the "AG" mentioned is Holder. I'd be "waiting for the other shoe to drop" on that one.

                          In Holder's version of the new law, it says that only cartel members are allowed to carry in DC, and if they do not have a weapon suitable to their station, he will assign them one.

                            What a generous man Holder is. Maybe he has some suitable weapons left over from "Fast and Furious" that he can lend out.

                              And they must show proficiency with assigned weapon.
